The Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) is holding an exhibition from now until the 4th of September displaying students’ creations of calligraphy. Calligraphy is a basic foundation of Islamic Art. You can hardly find an Islamic work of art, be it architecture, ceramic, textile or engraving without the direct or indirect presence of calligraphy. The MIA recognises the importance of this artform and is honoured to present its First Calligraphy Display, created by the calligraphy students of the museum’s Education Centre. The exhibition contains a group of calligraphies created in different scripts such as Kufic, Diwani, Jali Diwani, Farsi (Nestaliq) and Thuluth. This exhibition is an important step on the way to develop Arabic calligraphy in Qatar.
